United Way of Van Wert County recently granted Off The Street Van Wert County a check for $2,500. The money was given on behalf of the New Initiative Funds which allows organizations that are tax exempt to apply in order to help with a one-time need or project in Van Wert County.
The funds will be used to assist in the payment of security deposits, paid directly to landlords for people who do not have a home, but have the ability to make ongoing monthly rent payments. The program will partner with other agencies to identify homeless individuals who are eligible, as well as furnishings and basic home goods.
If you are a tax-exempt organization located in Van Wert County and would like to learn more about or even apply for New Initiative funds, please contact the United Way office at 419-238-6689 or email email@example.com.
